How to deal with cat allergies
Some people choose to use prescription medication to help with their allergies. However, if you’d like to avoid this there are some steps you can take to help reduce your allergic reaction to cats.
Step one: Grooming your pet on a daily basis can help reduce the amount of fur that they shed around the house. Less fur means less dander around your house! Plus, your cat will enjoy the social bonding time with you.
Step two: Carpets and floorboards have a habit of collecting lots of fur, so a daily clean/hoover can make a huge difference
Step three: Air purifiers have been known to help reduce allergens floating in the air
Step four: As people spend a lot of time in the bedroom and come into contact with bed linens which can harbour dander, keeping cats out of the bedroom should greatly reduce your reaction
The good news is that research suggests that some people build up a natural tolerance for their cat over time.
